This is a great starter course for data science. My learning assessment is usually how well I can teach it to someone else. I know I have a better understanding now, than I did when I started.

Is really hard to summarize the potential of Data Science and being clear, but I think that the instructors have done their best, so that we can achieve the most from the Course.\n\nGreat Job!

As good as it possibly can be for such a very short, high-level course. It can be completed in just a few hours.

Content was super high level. Deeper content will do (more examples, pages, exercises or real life practice).

It is what it is: a crash course. Good to immerse in before committing to longer and more expensive courses.

Good basics, but basic and you really need to have knowledge of many Data Science terms before you start.
